Week of May 1, 2017

Thursday Folder Fliers:

Field Day:
Our field day will be held on our last day of school, June 2nd. We are looking for volunteers to help make this a fabulous and successful day! Please sign up using this link

Iron Horse Student in the Spotlight:

Jude Ozaluk, a third grader at Iron Horse, recently raised over $11,000 for childhood cancer research through the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Read the article chronicling her efforts here. Way to go Jude!

Thinking Maps:
We have successfully completed learning all 8 thinking maps. Students will now begin to use all of the maps as needed throughout the day. Maps will be re-introduced yearly at the beginning of each year. 

Learning Commons: 
We are beginning a transformation of our Learning Commons and are looking for donations of supplies. If you or your students have outgrown these items, we would love to take them off your hands! We are in need of the following items:
  • Legos - bricks, people, and assorted items
  • Lego boards to build on
  • Lincoln Logs
  • K'Nex sets
  • Plastic Gear Sets
  • Board Games - elementary aged games
If you are able to donate any items, please bring them to the office. Thank you for your support!

5th Grade Parents:
Colts Corral is a program to help transition to Cimarron Middle School – there are 3 sessions from which to choose beginning July 10.
Great Strides is a ten-day opportunity to get to know Cimarron Middle School through academic and elective programming designed to help students get the best start possible. This program runs July 10-21.
Please see Cimarron's website for specifics with the link to RevTrak for registration. Once you connect to RevTrak, you will need to set up an account in RevTrak if you do not already have one. If you have ever enrolled in a sport, club, or field study (field trip) you will already have an account.
